Ohio House SMACKS DOWN Kasich On Abortion and Guns In Same Day

The Republican-led Ohio House of Representatives humiliated Ohio’s “Republican” governor John Kasich Thursday with two important votes.

Kasich, the lame duck anti-Trumper who might try to run against President Donald Trump in a 2020 presidential primary, vetoed his state’s “heartbeat” bill, which seeks to outlaw the aborting of unborn children with heartbeats. Kasich also tried to impose gun control by vetoing a pro-gun bill meant to benefit off-duty cops, but the House said NO to that move as well.

The AP reports: The Republican-led Ohio House has overridden GOP Gov. John Kasich’s veto of legislation imposing one of the most far-reaching abortion restrictions in the nation…The House eked out its 60-28 override of the abortion bill Thursday over strong objections by Democrats, who argued Ohio is leading a charge against women and the bill is unconstitutional…House members voted 67-22 Thursday to reject Kasich’s decision to strike down the gun legislation. It would expand gun access for off-duty police officers and at subsidized housing complexes and allow pre-emption of local gun restrictions, among other things.”
